Amazon adding adverts unless viewers pay a 2.99 a month premium to remove them.

Apple $3.00 trillion
Amazon $1.59 trillion

Netflix $214.98 billion
Comcast $176.82 billion
Walt Disney $166.47 billion

Warner Brothers Discovery $28.04 billion
Paramount $10.01 billion
AMC $1.21 billion
Amazon, Apple and Comcast's valuations will be held up somewhat by their other operations (retail, tech and as a cable operator in the US). Netflix valuation is out of step with its revenue, profit and debt levels - there's no real underlying asset. Disney have decades of content, theme parks, etc.

Everyone else is nowhere.

WBD hired a Original productions chief for Max that covers Italy which is a Sky territory as part of their new Southern Europe team

Certain content may well be shared, Sky apparently have life Of series rights to House Of Dragon non exclusively , I suspect Sky will want to keep showing HBO documentaries & Warner Bros movie premieres aswell for example

I'd prefer if they kept the Discovery+ name & 'upgraded' to MAX technology platform but they seem intent on this name unless threatened with Legal action like the Netherlands/Belgium.

Max in France will stream Eurosport live for example

I was suprised to learn WBD actually acquired all of Blu TV in Turkey so will likely get rebranded as MAX

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2023)

That's TV 2 starts on 3 January. I wonder if we will get it on Virgin?

I hope so as I enjoyed watching Black Mirror and other programmes over Christmas.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2023)

This thread should be renamed Going Soon From Virgin TV (2024)
With all the decent content and numerous channels, we've lost in the last year, will 2024 be nearing the end of Virgin TV as we've known it. Perhaps it would be wiser now for VM to concentrate OTT and Streaming Services with Broadband and relaunch its Stream service.

Your point is noted, I think the next one should just be "Virgin TV 2024" then it can cover all elements, coming, going or other.
